Default timing belt help in Spokane

Its about that time to get my timing belt changed. What would be nice is an extra set of experienced hands to reduce the learning curve; i also need to find someone that has the timing belt tools and vag-com to complete the job.

What i can give you in exchange is lunch/dinner and free use of my shop and lift. i need to get the job done the weekend of May 12th at the earliest or any day until May 19th

If i can't find anybody in Spokane, I'll be in Seattle until May 12th and have a space over there (Auburn/Lake Tapps area) but no lift. I can do the same lunch/dinner deal and kick you down some dollars for your time.

Thanks in advance,
Gabe

That's sounds like a plan if i can come up with some timing belt tools local (Seattle or Spokane)...you'd probably prefer to do the work in the Seattle area rather than in Spokane in my shop?

Maybe we can get a group of people together that want to learn how to change a timing belt and other maintenance...and get a local guru with the tools and expertise to help out. I'm definitely willing to offer my shop space as a place to do this.

I would be willing to drive to Longview...unless you wanted to make a roadtrip to Auburn. Maybe an impromptu get together at my shop space there...i don't have a lift at this location, but do have an engine hoist,jacks, and a bbq. Anyone else interested would be welcome to come down and do some work on their cars, bbq, and bs.

Slam house, we are doing it on Monday at my place in rainier, if you are still in. We are going to take a little cruise to Portland for parts. Then tear into the car.
Get a hold of one of us for more details. Anyone else that wants to go for a cruise and hang out, eat some food, is welcome to join us.

Looking forward to knocking some other stuff off my wish-list as well.
Should feel like a whole new car to me when we're done.

We are going to try and start early. Install some toys at the shop and then go for a cruise to Portland for tuning and parts. Then back to the shop to tear into the belt. Should be fun.
